One of my favorite places to hear live music in Huntsville is at the Folk Mission monthly listening room concerts at Straight to Ale. And it just so happens the first 2014 Folk Mission Concert is coming up this weekend, on January 18, 2014 featuring Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion.
5 Reasons to Check out the Folk Mission Concert
For those of you who have not experienced the Folk Mission Concert awesomeness, here are 5 reasons you simply MUST check out this weekend’s Folk Mission Concert.
The Folk Mission Concert takes place in the fabulous Straight to Ale taproom, which provides amazing acoustics as well as great seating. No matter where you sit, you’ve got a terrific seat. Plus it’s a fun listening room atmosphere. Perfect for a date night, girls night out or guys night.
January’s concert features folk rock duo (and husband and wife) Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion.
“The album is divided between sunshiny, often West Coast styled strummy pop and a darker, more meditative style.” – Hal Horowitz in American Songwriter
“The sheer songwriting quality and the craft of the production that occasionally adds strings, pianos, and extra reverb is clearly the work of musicians who take their jobs seriously.” – Hal Horowitz in American Songwriter
Craft beer efficenatos will rejoice at Straight to Ale’s selections of brews, made onsite and available before, during and after the show.
You may know Sarah Lee’s father, Arlo Guthrie, American folk singer.
Even if that name doesn’t ring a bell I bet you’re familiar with her grandfather, iconic folk singer Woody Guthrie. Still nothing? Woody wrote “This Land Is Your Land.” Bet you’ve heard that. And their music lives on in Sarah.
Tickets are ONLY $15! That’s the cost of a movie ticket folks- if you’re lucky! And you’re getting an awesome concert in a terrific (smoke free) venue.
